See below for the 00z aviation discussion...
Isolated showers (and a couple thunderstorms) have developed this
late afternoon across portions of the region, with these slowly
moving to the northwest. With very little wind shear to work with,
these showers storms will be short lived. Coverage is sparse enough
to handle with only vcsh at aus Sat ssf. These showers should come to
an end with the loss of daytime heating. Otherwise,VFR conditions
and southeasterly winds will persist through the evening. MVFR cigs
are expected to develop again at Sat ssf by around 8z Friday morning.
A brief period or two of MVFR CIGS will be possible again at aus on
Friday morning.VFR CIGS are expected to return by mid Friday
morning. Winds will become light and variable by early Friday morning
before returning to southeasterly around 7 to 8 knots by mid to late
Friday morning. At drt,VFR conditions and southeasterly winds
around 10 knots are expected throughout the TAF period.

isolated showers have developed further inland, now into portions of
the eastern hill country and i-35 corridor. Have updated to include a
mention of isolated showers through sunset near and east of a
fredericksburg to hondo to pearsall line. Can't rule out an isolated
thunderstorms or two.

short term (tonight through Friday night)...
a few showers are lifting into the coastal plains this afternoon as
the sea breeze continues to push inland. Visible satellite imagery
shows much less vertical extent to the cumulus field than this time
yesterday as a weakness in the mid-level height field continues to
translate west of the region. While an isolated shower or two cannot
be ruled out east of interstate 35 through the early evening hours,
expect much lower shower coverage than yesterday. Loss of daytime
heating will result in convection waning with another dry night
expected as nocturnal stratus redevelops and keeps overnight lows in
the mid to upper 70s.
Afternoon water vapor imagery shows an inverted trough lifting up
the eastern mexico coast and as this feature reaches the northwest
gulf on Friday, expect scattered to numerous thunderstorms to develop|
along the sea breeze mid-morning through the afternoon. This,
combined with slightly more cloud cover as convective temperatures
are reached, should help moderate temperatures a few degrees on
Friday with highs in the mid 90s to near 100. Will have to watch
progress of an outflow boundary stretching from the low rolling
plains of texas to the red river for any southward progress overnight
and during the day Friday as it may serve as a focus for
thunderstorm activity over parts of the hill country by Friday
evening. Regardless, forecast soundings from near san angelo indicate
convective temperatures will easily be met tomorrow afternoon with
little to no capping in place and even if the boundary does not make
it south, a few thunderstorms will be possible across the western
hill country during to just after peak heating. Have added low (20
percent) rain chances to the western hill country to account for
this. Loss of heating will again make Friday night dry for the region
with lows in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Long term (Saturday through Thursday)...
with the disturbance lingering over the northwest gulf on Saturday
and a shortwave trough crossing the southern plains on Saturday and
Sunday, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will again be
possible across the hill country, central texas, and into the coastal
plains during peak heating. Highs in the mid 90s to near 100 this
weekend will climb into the upper 90s to low 100s on Monday as upper
ridging builds back across the region from the west. Monday appears
to be one of the hotter days in the forecast period and will need to
be monitored for potential heat advisories. Dry and hot conditions
are expected to persist through Thursday as ridging spreads farther
across the region.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
